Accident Compensation Cases

Perkins v Accident Compensation Corporation (DC, 10/09/08)

Judgment Text

Judge M J Beattie
This appeal arises from a decision of Reviewer, Mr M J Dunn, dated 25 June 2007, and relates to Review Application No. 100959. 
The appellant had made application to review a letter from the respondent dated 29 January 2007 to her GP, Dr Karl. The letter to Dr Karl sought his input into the Draft Rehabilitation Plan which had been formulated. 
The appellant's application for review contends that Dr Karl was operating under an invalid Consent to Disclosure Form. 
In his decision, the Reviewer determined that the matter of the Consent Form did not constitute a decision within the meaning of Section 6 of the Act, and he therefore declined jurisdiction to consider the substantive matter. 
It is the case that the respondent's use of a Consent Form is not a reviewable decision, nor was the letter of 29 January 2007 to Dr Karl a reviewable decision. The review decision was correct. 
Accordingly, this appeal is dismissed.
